    What do you guys think of his first solo cd, "Enter By The Twelfth Gate" ?

    I just bought it yesterday and I think it's amazing. The composition is beautiful in his songs. If there's anything that I wanted to see better was longer songs! But his cd rules and I am loving the atmospheres he creates.

    Cross The Bridge has some kinda S-X keyboard melody, but it sounds awesome!

    I found it really amazing too. I think that some longer songs would've added more emotion to the album. The style is kinda different comparing it to his work in Symphony X, but it is really great.

    Enter by the 12th gate = castlevania music.

    I am thouroughly satisfied by this CD, but as far as keyboard albums go, nothing beats Vitalij Kuprij's solo work.

    The piano etude by Scriabin its very difficult, even for the best pianists

    I found Warmen's Beyond Abilities very satisfying as well as Vitalij Kuprij's solo album. But Enter by the 12th gate is a great album too.

    This is probably my favorite disc so far this year. To hear Pinella like that is somthing that happens not often enough. I listened to it for 2 weeks straight after I got it, it puts me in a good mood whenever i listen.

    it creqtes a feeling that is hard to reproduce with any other album, its freakin incredible...and that scriabin etude is MONTROUSLY difficult.

    I know a girl who´s a concert pianist and i ask her about this piece and she told me that in scale of 0-10 the etude deserves a 9...

    Pinella :worship:

    The drum machine sounds so real...I believed it was a real drum kit.

    My opinion is that the album is rather good. Not good enough to beat any SymX album.... but that's only my opinion.
    Anyway iishrak... One thing I am sure of is that everything beats Vitalij Kuprij's solo work. :)
